Clothing for July Trip

Since we have kids coming along with us I want to make sure that I am covered but since we are flying in I am limited with what I can bring. I am just wondering if I need to pack heavy coats, gloves etc. Someone suggested I take a bit of everything since you never know what the weather will be.

We are planning to be there in early June, so we will realy have the potential for cold weather. To save space in suitcases, I plan to pack many layers. I will have under armour, sweatshirts, heavy shirts and a medium weight rain proof parka along with golves. All of those can be folded in the suit case and if we have extreme weather, I can put on 3 or 4 layers to stay warm and dry.

When I was a kid, we were in Yellowstone in July. I still remember waking up in the morning to temperatures well below freezing and having cups of water left in the car being frozen.

When were there in mid-July, the mornings were chilly and warmed up quickly. It can get hot during the day. I wore a fleece jacket to start the day but took it off pretty early.

Nubbsy,

We went durning the month of August. Early morning was in the 40s while it got into the mid 80s durning the afternoon.

I dressed in layers, but for you and your family you may get by with a spring coat/sweatshirt for the mornings.

Enjoy your trip!

We were there last year in late May. We had cold mornings and then it warmed up nicely. We brought long sleeved shirts, sweatshirts and light jackets and we were fine. We also flew so had to pack accordingly.

That time of year, don't waste space on gloves. It can be brisk in the morning and at night, but not cold enough to need gloves. Layers are fine.
